i think that depends on the workload. you could set it to run every friday night if you have a bigger workload or 1-2 times a month otherwise.

Or you could buy third party software that does it when the system wasn't busy - software like Diskeeper or PerfectDisk.

Can you set it to run automatically? We run 24/7 and I heard that you should not run disk defrag when people are working on the network.

The built in defrag has virtually no intelligence.  Third party products as I mentioned can do things in the background.  You have SBS which means you're not THAT big... As much as you may have constant access, I would be surprised if it were literally constant access.
